Title: Topics in Language Resources for Translation and Localisation
Edited By: Elia Yuste Rodrigo
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=BTL%2079
Series Title: Benjamins Translation Library 79
Description:

Language Resources (LRs) are sets of language data and descriptions in
machine readable form, such as written and spoken language corpora,
terminological databases, computational lexica and dictionaries, and
linguistic software tools. Over the past few decades, mainly within
research environments, LRs have been specifically used to create, optimise
or evaluate natural language processing (NLP) and human language
technologies (HLT) applications, including translation-related
technologies. Gradually the infrastructures and exploitation tools of LRs
are being perceived as core resources in the language services industries
and in localisation production settings. However, some efforts ought yet to
be made to raise further awareness about LRs in general, and LRs for
translation and localisation in particular to a wider audience in all
corners of the world. Topics in Language Resources for Translation and
Localisation
sets out to establish the state of the art of this ever
expanding field and underscores the usefulness that LRs can potentially
have in the process of creating, adapting, managing, standardising and
leveraging content for more than one language and culture from various
perspectives.
